    According to TMZ, Long was “on social media as he shot a dozen people dead, and, based on what we now know, it sounds like they were revenge killings.” TMZ reports that law enforcement officials told the site that Long held his gun in one hand and his phone in the other, posting messages throughout the rampage....... .....TMZ states that it learned from a high school classmate of Long’s that he was the victim of bullying in school, leading to a possible motive for the crime. According to the report, Long was a regular at the Borderline Bar & Grill...

    Courtney’s Restaurant and Catering owner Tom Courtney said he’s experienced a strong social media backlash because he rented the event room at his Mt. Juliet business to U.S. Senate candidate Rep. Marsha Blackburn on Saturday. Courtney said he’s been called a Nazi, an abuser, had his life threatened and said his staff has been verbally attacked. Hundreds of posters on social media said they would boycott his restaurant because it was a local venue to Blackburn, who is running for a seat in the U.S. Senate against former Democratic Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen. “People have posted they love our food,...

    Conservative commentator and outspoken “Never Trump” critic Bill Kristol mocked first lady Melania Trump for claiming she is one of the most bullied people in the world. “Cry me a river,” Kristol tweeted Thursday morning in response to Melania Trump's claim. (TWEET-AT-LINK) Melania Trump made the comment in an interview with ABC News during her first solo trip in Africa. "I could say that I'm the most bullied person in the world," she said. “One of them -- if you really see what people are saying about me." She continued by saying her experience with bullying is in part what...

    Melania Trump isn’t just an anti-bullying advocate, she says she’s a victim, as well. In an interview broadcast Thursday morning on ABC, the first lady also showed she shared her husband’s gift for hyperbole. “I could say that I’m the most bullied person in the world,” Trump told reporter Tony Llamas. When he questioned that claim, she backed down, but only slightly. “One of them ― if you really see what people are saying about me,” she said. Many Twitter users didn’t respond to her with much sympathy. Instead, they broke out really teeny violins for a symphony of snark.

    First lady Melania Trump told ABC News in an exclusive interview that she has told her husband there have been people in his administration she didn't trust who worked for him. She also said she believes she is one of the most bullied people in the world. Asked by ABC News Chief National Affairs Correspondent Tom Llamas whether there are still people in the president’s administration "he can't trust," the first lady said yes "It's harder to govern," the first lady said in a clip set to air Thursday on "Good Morning America."

    For the first time since Donald Trump entered the political fray, I find myself grateful that he’s in it. I’m reluctant to admit it and astonished to say it, especially since the president mocked Christine Blasey Ford in his ugly and gratuitous way at a rally on Tuesday. Perhaps it’s worth unpacking this admission for those who might be equally astonished to read it.

    A 10-year-old boy who needed hospital treatment after being beaten up by bullies, refused to fight back because “it’s not the Jedi way”, his mother said. Lizette Casanova said her son Aiden Vasquez “felt it in his soul not to hit the kid back”, while being tormented by a classmate at his California school. The Star Wars fan’s ordeal came to the attention of Mark Hamill – who played Luke Skywalker in the film series – who said of the boy, he was “astonished by his wisdom and courage”. Police are investigating an allegation of assault after Ms Casanova...

    A nine-year-old boy has killed himself after enduring four days of homophobic bullying at school in Denver, Colorado, his mother says. Leia Pierce told KDVR-TV that her son, Jamel Myles, revealed to her over the summer that he was gay. She said Jamel wanted to go to school and tell his classmates because he was "proud" to be gay. Denver Public Schools (DPS) say crisis counsellors have been made available to students at Jamel's elementary school. The school system sent letters to families on Friday about the additional counselling services for students. The letter, addressed to Shoemaker families, says Jamel's...

    There she is . . . Miffed America. Cara Mund, the 2018 winner of the Miss America pageant, has traded in her crown for boxing gloves, blasting higher-ups as nothing more than mean girls who bullied, belittled and muzzled her. “About two weeks ago, I started researching workplace bullying . . . Ultimately, this is my year in a nutshell,” the former Miss North Dakota wrote to former Miss Americas in a lengthy letter made public Friday. “Our chair and CEO have systematically silenced me, reduced me, marginalized me, and essentially erased me in my role as Miss America in subtle and not-so-subtle ways...
  • Meet Lucy McHale, the Rosa Parks of Middle School (Girl, 14, stands up to gay bullies!)

    Lucy McHale, now 14, worked at the snack bar at the local pool in Olney, Maryland. One day a boy from her school leaned over the counter and told one of Lucy’s co-workers to kiss him. In today’s #MeToo environment this would be a clear violation, except the person he wanted to kiss was another boy. Because the boy demanding a kiss was supposedly gay, and because Lucy stepped in to defend her co-worker, she became the devil in the story, and the target of harassment at Rosa Parks Middle School. Sometime later, Lucy was sitting with two of her...

    Legal matters relating to the LGBT community have always been controversial; even so, LGBT advocates are increasingly attacking not just outspoken anti-LGBT advocates but even mainstream conservative organizations that happen to disagree with the view that homosexual marriage is on par with heterosexual relationships. In a move that is sure to alarm many in the legal community, the LGBT Bar Association has started an official petition asking members of the legal community not to cooperate with conservative legal groups that defend traditional marriage, including the Alliance Defending Freedom and Liberty Counsel. These two particular groups were likely named not just...

    High-profile journalists are saying they might leave Twitter after tweets attacking them and family members. The latest controversy is underscoring how the popular social media platform has become toxic in the current political climate. CNN reporter and commentator Chris Cillizza tweeted on Sunday that he was “about done” with Twitter, after tweets mocking his child’s peanut allergy. “We are talking about a 9 year old. Feel free to hate me. But don’t mock my son’s peanut allergy. Classless and indefensible,” Cillizza wrote. MSNBC Anchor Chuck Todd also offered support to Cillizza and criticized the abuse. “Every time I think Twitter...

    The “Unmasking Antifa Act of 2018,” legislation introduced in the House, carries a potential 15-year prison sentence for those caught engaging in behaviors typically associated with the “antifa” movement of anti-fascist activists. Under the act, anyone “wearing a mask” or in disguise who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person … in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege” is subject to a fine or up to 15 years in prison. The bill was introduced in the House last month but received renewed attention on Tuesday after alt-right personality Mike Cernovich encouraged his followers to call their...

    A message was posted on Rumble’s Facebook account on Wednesday explaining that a part-time employee had been fired for “assaulting another person at a local eatery.” “It came to our attention earlier this evening that a part-time employee was captured on cell phone video assaulting another person at a local eatery,” the statement reads. “The assault took place, presumably, because this employee did not agree with the other individuals political stance.” “We have since terminated this employee, as his actions go against everything that this establishment stands for.”

    When the Furries came to Pittsburgh last year for the annual Anthrocon convention, reader Jay Poliziani of Greenfield wrote a letter to the editor stating, “I’m proud to live in a city that makes the members of this convention feel safe and welcome each year.” Indeed, the Furries seem to have found a singular home in Pittsburgh, where they plugged $7.7 million into the local economy last year. They have been convening here since the mid-2000s. But this acceptance is not universal. In fact, as a demographic, Furries are bullied, stigmatized or otherwise discriminated against to such an extent that...
